Tonight it is just me and Dave flying solo here at the hospital. Duty called for Mike to return home for tHe administrative retreat and I am sitting up waiting to give Dave his GCSF shot. The sweet nurses have offered to give it, but we have our system down for a low stress shot and they respect that and let us do our thing. I am watching our boy sleep tonight and the reality of this crazy week has finally caught up to me. I hope that one day when Dave is an old man he will read this:
Our hearts are so full of love for you. You are such an example each and everyday of bravery and strength. I could bawl when I think how much you have endured since November, yet you keep smiling and singing praises to our God.
Never did we dream that when God blessed our lives with you seven (almost eight) years ago that you would teach us so much more than we have ever taught you. You make us see the world differently as we have learned from you that anybody can be used to serve God and love others.
Just like God chose David in the bible to fight that big giant Goliath, you sweet boy are fighting a huge Goliath. We hate that your Task is so big, but we know just like David in the bible you have God on your side. I am so amazed each and everyday how many people you share Jesus' love with and how many people are singing and believing "how he loves us" because of that David Crowder Band song that you sing all the time.
We can't wait to see how God is going to continue to use you, sweet boy to point people to Him. Jesus is so proud of you and He loves you so much. We wish your road was a little smoother and easier but God has an awesome plan for you. We trust in His plan for our family and we know that this nightmare is just a blip on the radar screen of our lives.
Stay strong little man and know how proud we are to be on this adventure with you. Keep singing praises to our God, pointing people to him through your faith and trust and keep fighting the good fight. Keep also spreading the good news that He loves us all.
We love you!
Mommy and Daddy
P.s. I just gave you a shot in the leg that I did not put numbing creme on. Please forgive me :)
